    Drongo, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

    Seen at city park in Kuala Lumpur in March. I believe it is either Greater Racket-tailed or Crow-billed Drongo. Did not show rackets on tail or prominent fluff of feathers behind the bill that would be characteristic of Greater Racket-tailed. I know that these terrible photos may not be clear...

    What drongo is this? (Singapore)

    Hi! Is it possible to tell from these photos what species this bird might be? I thought it was a crow-billed drongo initially, but some others have suggested it could just be a greater racket-tailed drongo, without its racket-tails. Thank you.

    S/he was far away. BG is a half-dried Chromolaena bush which didn't help the exposure either . Thank you for your kind appreciation of my previous post.
